Claude Patrick vs. James Wilks, Steve Cantwell Added to UFC 120

Claude PatrickAfter both earning wins at UFC 115 in June, The Ultimate Fighter 9 welterweight winner James Wilks is set to meet Claude Patrick at “UFC 120: Bisping vs. Akiyama” on October 16 in London.

UFC 120, which airs on tape-delay on Spike TV, is also expected to include the return of former WEC light heavyweight champ Steve Cantwell, who hasn’t fought since dropping a unanimous decision loss to Brian Stann in September.

An England native, Wilks (7-3) most-recently scored a unanimous decision over Peter Sobotta at UFC 115 to rebound from a November loss to Matt Brown. “Lightning” had previously won four-straight, including submitting DaMarques Johnson in June 2009 to win TUF 9’s 170-pound tournament.

Patrick (12-1) extended his win streak to 11-straight in his UFC debut, as he submitted Ricardo Funch in the second-round on the UFC 115 prelims.

The UFC 120 fight card is headlined by Michael Bisping vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama and also includes Dan Hardy vs. Carlos Condit and John Hathaway vs. Dong Hyun Kim.
